What you need to know
- Google Store is launching a new easy-to-use website that replaces busy menus with clear pictures and wider categories.
- Phones and watches are the first category in the list, which indicates that Google may change its priorities from smart home to smartwatch.
- The new design is now available in the US, UK, Germany and Japan.
Google sells all of its products in a properly named Google Store. Google launched its first physical retail store last summer and is now upgrading its look to the web, including new simplified product categories and reorganization that needs to be known.
Now available in the US, UK, Germany and Japan, the new Google Store features a simpler layout that shows product categories rather than Google brands (by 9 to5Google). That’s a big step for Google, having previously topped the site with the top titles on Pixel, Nest, Stadia, Fitbit and Pixelbook.
The new design instead features phones, watches, smart home, gaming, laptops and subscriptions. You can see the difference between the new and the old design in the pictures below.
You can find many graphic images of each product category and details by calling each section. Previously, every menu was a huge text wall, so you need to read a lot to find the product you are looking for. Interestingly, it now prioritizes phones and watches over other categories of Google products such as smartphones, games and laptops.
That change comes ahead of the expected Pixel Watch announcement on Google I / O 2022 early next month, which is one of the latest gossip from Google. The Pixel Watch has been rumored for years but since last calendar year all the cracks and rumors have been directed towards the same design, which confirms the authenticity of the leaks. We expect the Pixel Watch to go on sale with the Samsung Galaxy 4 4 as the best Android smartphone.
Google Pixel 6 brings the best of Google to an amazing family of phones.
